    He's been missing on here for a couple of days. Just wondered if anyone has been in touch. Has his project ended?:confused:

    I'm sure Linkedin will need more cards and the project will continue.

    Oh no...I hope not. He has been missing for a few days before and came back. Have you emailed the company? They usually get back to you quickly.

    Probably they are stockpiling cards for us to work on.

    Hopefully. There were more and more repeats. I saw the same card three times in an hour recently. That's after seeing it many times in the past.

    No, I haven't emailed them yet. I'll do that and let you know if I hear anything.

    I keep getting broken Oscar Smith HITS where it does not display his business card pictures. Just a icon of a broken picture. I refreshed over and over hoping to get the picture back but no luck. I had to return them 3 times. Now my score is going to be screwed! I'm pissed. I'm not doing any more of em.

    UPDATE: I decided to click "broken" on the bottom. And I knew I only had 8 minutes left on the timer. I watched and waited. I picked it back up and it still was broken so I put it back and waited til I had like 2 minutes left and tried again and it was fixed!! So if you get a broken one, try clicking "broken" on the bottom link and wait and see. I was relieved not to return it for the 3rd time. Whew. Oscar either fixed it or system did, I don't know but in any case, it got through.

    Oscar Smith is not a person, not anymore. LinkedIn owns the account.

    I had yet another one of those broken HITs and I clicked broken and waited. 60 seconds left .. still broken so I had no choice but return it. I guess that didn't work this time. I'm going to stop doing them. It's not worth all the returns I've been doing. (3 broken HITS returned total now)

    Yeah I looked that up the other day. I don't even think there was an original "Oscar Smith" involved.

    Funny,I just got a email from Oscar Smith...LOL. Those HITS sure disappeared fast! And I still don't understand his scoring system...oh well, just do my best work and as long as they aren't rejected, I'll be happy.

    Hey, thanks for that info...really interesting...I DID know Oscar is a screen name...LOL, but what else would I call "him"? :) Frustrated as all get out today, though, because it seems that the links are broken on most cards I've tried to do and therefore can't be read...can't very well scan the logo to return as "broken link" - grrrrr....

    I hear ya - thought this sounded familiar before I posted...duh, should have scrolled up a little. I love doing these, but wonder what it's going to "cost" me in returned HITS.
